"Motion Sickness Exercise," which will be presented in form of a performative installation and video on the lower level of Museum Brandhorst from July 29 to 31, 2022. In conversation with research associate Franziska Linhardt, they provide insights into the collective and interdisciplinary exercise series dedicated to so-called "motion sickness" or "simulator sickness"; this form of vertigo is caused by a discrepancy between the movement of one’s own body and the visualized environment when using virtual reality technologies. Based on "Motion Sickness Exercise" they talk about the potentials and flaws of technologies and their interdependency with states of the body and normative ways of thinking.
